Show Summary

FOX Broadcasting teamed with Steven Spielberg, Peter Chernin, Brannon Braga, Rene Echevarria and Aaron Kaplan to bring a new series, Terra Nova. In the year 2149, the planet Earth is a disaster, and most of the plant and animal life has become extinct. Scientists can't reverse the damage, but have found a way to travel back to prehistoric times to save the human race.

Among the Tenth Pilgrimage of settlers in Terra Nova is the Shannon family. Jim Shannon, played by Jason O'Mara, is a loving father with secrets in his past. His wife, Elisabeth, is a trauma surgeon who has been recruited to join Terra Nova's medical team. Their three children join them on this journey: Josh is 17 and is not happy about leaving the life he knows. Maddy is 15 and is looking forward to a new life and a chance to make changes. Zoe is 5, and there is a secret involving her that could create problems for the Shannon family.

Commander Nathaniel Taylor warns the new arrivals of the dangers that surround them in Terra Nova. There are not only dinosaurs, but other settlers who have left the colony to start their own. The outcast colony is led by Mira, who left because she disagreed with Taylor as a leader. The Shannons soon discover not all the danger exists outside the walls of Terra Nova. Some of the members of their group disagree on how to save mankind and some may even be trying to destroy the new world before it can get started.

While FOX has announced the cancellation, Terra Nova is being shopped to other networks.

    • I loved it!!

      It was a very good TV show. The blistering idiot that cancelled it should be fired! Please bring it back. It's not to late to pick up where it left off!!
    • Great show, wish they'd kept it!

      This was a really good show with fun characters and storylines, and good actors. The youngest daughter and the singing bits could have been tossed. But the rest was good! A pre-historic environment with dinosaurs in a show that had an actual storyline and lots of character development to keep it interesting. So much better than a lot of garbage that for some reason, is still on tv!!

      Some other good series: Firefly, Star-Crossed, The Nine Lives of Chloe King, Moonlight, Dracula (2013) tv series, Kindred - The Embraced, Marvel's Daredevil, Switched at Birth & the new Colony tv series. Fun to watch with good acting!!

      Wish they had kept this show going!moreless
